Two children's songs about cats, "Warm Kitty" and "Lille Katt" (little cat in Swedish)


"Lille Katt" (little cat), in Emil i Lönneberga

Mike Anderson has a lovely children's song up on Facebook, and it reminds me of an equally lovely song from a Swedish movie adaptation of a book by Astrid Lindgren. The book is Emil i Lönneberga, and the song is called "Lille Katt" (little cat), sung by Emil's sister Ada.

But first, Mike's song:

Mike posted it to Facebook yesterday, saying, "This tune has become a regular part of my shows (adults and kids!) I am amazed how much I have changed the words. I need to relearn the words the kids wrote; they are much better!!"

Lille katt, lille katt, lille söte katta. Vet du att, vet du att, de blir mörkt om natta. Lille gris, lille gris, lille söte grisen. Om du frys, om du frys, så gör eld i spisen. Lille ko, lille ko, lille söte koa. De va ho, de va ho, ho som sket på broa. Lille mor, lille mor, lille söte mora. Ho fick skor, ho fick skor, men dom va för stora. Lille far, lille far, lille söte faren. En sån karl, en sån karl, de e tur vi har'en. Little cat , little cat, Little katta the honeymoon . Do you know that , you know , they become dark if stay overnight. Little pig , little pig, the honeymoon little pig. If you freeze , you freeze , so does the fire in the fireplace . Little cow , little cow, little the honeymoon koa . They huh , ho, ho va , trough shat on broa . Little mother , little mother, little the honeymoon mora . Ho got shoes , ho got shoes, but judgment va large . Little father , little father, the honeymoon little sheep. What a man , what a man , e the turn we har'en .
